Match Of The Past: AFC Bournemouth

0 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   November 18, 2012  |     8

Having now completed the clubs of the Premier League and the Football League Championship, we continue our series of archive matches this morning by kicking off League One with AFC Bournemouth. Our first match comes from the days when the clubs was still known as Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, and it’s a home match from the Fifth Round of the 1956/57 FA Cup against Tottenham Hotspur. The club changed its name to AFC Bournemouth in 1972, and our second match comes from ten years after this, a trip to Valley Parade to play Bradford City in May 1982, a result which saw the team promoted from the Fourth Division of the Football League. Our third match is another top of the table clash, a trip to The County Ground to play Swindon Town in April 1987. Our fourth match sees them travel to play Hull City during the 1989/90 season, and we round off with a further two away wins, against Brentford from April 1995 and against Peterborough United from January 1996.
